Sky Sports understands Burnley are lining up a loan swoop for Coventry City's highly-rated midfielder Gael Bigirimana.

The 18-year-old enjoyed an impressive first half of the season after making his Coventry debut on the opening day of the campaign against Leicester City.

He was subsequently awarded a one-year contract extension to tie him to the Ricoh Arena until 2014, however, he has not featured since early January.

Bigirimana has made 21 appearances in all competitions for the struggling Sky Blues this term and could now be offered the chance to gain further experience at Burnley.

Short-listed for the Championship apprentice of the season award, Bigirimana was sent off when Coventry lost 2-1 at home to Burnley back in October.
